libbz2-1.0 binary package in Ubuntu Intrepid ia64
This package contains libbzip2 which is used by the bzip2 compressor.
bzip2 is a freely available, patent free, high-quality data compressor.
It typically compresses files to within 10% to 15% of the best available
techniques, whilst being around twice as fast at compression and six
times faster at decompression.
bzip2 compresses files using the Burrows-Wheeler block-sorting text
compression algorithm, and Huffman coding. Compression is generally
considerably better than that achieved by more conventional
LZ77/LZ78-based compressors, and approaches the performance of the PPM
family of statistical compressors.
The archive file format of bzip2 (.bz2) is incompatible with that of its
predecessor, bzip (.bz).
